The Vistra Energy announced on Wednesday it would be closing its Dynegy Power Station in Hennepin along with three other power plants throughout the state. State Senator Sue Rezin (R Morris) says this closure will have a large impact on the small community, which is located in the 38th Senate District.

"The retirement of the Hennepin plant was something I had worked for several years to avoid," said Sen. Rezin. "This plant provides a huge economic benefit to the region, and while the news is sure to be devastating to the hard-working employees and their families, it is my hope that our area employers will have their backs so that they can continue to live, work, and raise their families here."
